Lunar 7th Month

The Lunar 7th month has just started. The Chinese believe that the gates of hell are open at this time. Believers burn paper offerings for the “good brothers” or ghosts which have been granted permission to visit the mortal world. Lavish dinners and stage performances are held during this time.

It is also a time when writers get inspiration to pen romantic ghost stories. Do you have one to tell?
